TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm happy to say that I'm in my 25th year of teaching--all at the same high school in central Pennsylvania. I've taught 9th - 12th graders, spending most of my days with sophomores and juniors. I've also done a great deal of homebound instruction for students who are temporarily out of school for one reason or another. The successes these students saw while enduring their own struggles is inspiring!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in the power of my students to learn and learn and learn, so it is my philosophy to present them with the foundations for their learning and a multitude of opportunities to express that learning--and then to step back and let them have at it. There is always a specific, standards-based, rigorous end in mind, but they are ultimately in charge of their learning--with the best coach on the sidelines I can be.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

A recent shining moment: On a recent Friday afternoon just before the bell rang at the end of the day, after sharing several poems by Billy Collins with my students, one self-professed poetry hater said: "Well, I kind of like poetry now!" Talk about a WONDERFUL way to end the week!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

San Diego State--I began my education there--as an El. Ed. major. Penn State Harrisburg--Where I earned my undergraduate degree--in Sec. Ed. Humanities. Many, many workshops and courses that have provided new insights and current educational information.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I chuckled during the interview for my current teaching position when I was described as "bicoastal", but I am, indeed, a product of both coasts of the United States. After growing up in California, I moved to Pennsylvania (long story....) and now love this beautiful state. I am--and always will be--a California girl, but Pennsylvania is my home. Do any of you have your heart in more than one place? Contact me: msaylor.secondarystrategies@gmail.com
